    We've had an interesting thread in this forum about bicycling. Some people have been very vocal despite or perhaps because they don't bike. I'm curious what peoples relationship to the bicycle is.

    They're called bike trails for a reason.. If you're not on a bike, stay the hell outta the way. :D

    If my knees worked, i'd ride a bike for fun. :) I doubt I'd commute to work, because I'm too lazy.

    My local bike trail is infested with Russians walking 4 or 5 abreast and creating a roadblock, rollerbladers swerving from side to side blocking the entire trail (they wear headphones, so "on your right!" doesn't work), dog walkers with dogs off leash and intent on getting stuck in my spokes and other hazards. Fun.

    I'll ride thru bike trails for hours.. But I'm not there "training", or whatever, so I'll damn well stay outta the way, and/or move as necessary.

    Ya think?--the bike riders in my side of town better be pretty damn straight when they ride or they will end up under a vehicle with an internal combustion engine.
